A corporate employee newsletter offers an ideal opportunity to discover how literacy functions as a means of assimilating individuals into a social structure. Underlying the corporate newsletter's assimilative function are the assumptions: (1) that in reading, employees rely on attitudes toward types of texts evolved within society as a whole; and (2) that employees create and enter into roles and relationships cued by the text...

This study explored empirically the influence of acculturation (Hispanics' acquisition of behavioral patterns of the North American culture) on help seeking (coping) when a stressful event is experienced. It has been proposed that mental health services in the United States are highly reflective of Anglo American cultural values and thus culturally irrelevant to Hispanics. Hispanic heads of households (N=248) were interviewed by telephone...

[texts]ERIC ED320418: A Paradigm Regained: Conflict Perspective on Language Use in Bilingual Educational and Social Contexts. - ERIC
The validity of the consensus paradigm dominant in sociolinguistics is questioned. Social scientists working in this paradigm take the perspective of society as an aggregate operating through agreement between its constituent elements, working to the benefit of the aggregate. The best-known of the consensus-oriented theories is structural-functionalism (S-F), which sees society as a system of mutually supportive institutions where each institution contributes to the system as a whole, maintainin...

[texts]ERIC ED319056: Growth and Conflict in Basic Writing. - ERIC
The most serious approaches to teaching basic writing in the last 20 years have been framed by the competing metaphors of growth and metaphors of initiation. The growth model pulled attention away from the forms of academic discourse and toward what students could and could not do as writers, and encouraged teachers to respect and work with the skills which students brought to the classroom. Recent metaphors of initiation have often seemed to exaggerate conflicts and differences, in equating lea...

Multicultural studies often emphasize the need to diversify school curricula. There is a need for more varied representations of cultures in English teaching because the representations which teachers present heavily influence students' access to literacy. Many proponents of mainstreaming cultural diversity use liberal theories about cultural difference. However, assimilation and inclusion of minority cultures as the goal of cultural diversity and social change too narrowly define the difference...
